East Campus Library
The development of a college professor is a journey laden with triumphs and tribulations, successes and failures. In her groundbreaking work, Inspired College Teaching, author and professor Maryellen Weimer inspires faculty colleagues to adapt to challenges in novel ways, awaken their own intellectual curiosities, and maintain both inspiration and the courage to teach. Weimer's talk will highlight ways that faculty can maintain instructional vitality amidst the many vicissitudes that accompany life in the academy.
In 2007 MARYELLEN WEIMER retired from Penn State as a Professor Emeritus of Teaching and Learning. For the last 13 years of her career at Penn State she taught communication courses, first year seminars and other courses business students at one of Penn State's regional campus colleges. In 2005 she won Penn State's Milton S. Eisenhower award for distinguished teaching.
Before returning to full time teaching, Dr. Weimer was the Associate Director of the National Center on Postsecondary Teaching, Learning and Assessment, a five year, $5.9 million, U. S. Department of Education research and development center. The Center, a consortium of six universities, was part of the Center for the Study of Higher Education at Penn State University where Dr. Weimer was a senior research associate.
